A friend's Dad gave me truck jacks. He delivered milk to stores and supermarkets in NYC. Wondering if anyone has information on them and picture of a handle. They're too tall for front of my 55.1 3600, but good size for rear. Thanks

I recall seeing jacks like that years ago, but don't have any information other than I believe the handle was a flat bar that was also use for demounting tires (was spoon-like on one end). I think there may still be one of those tire irons in my mom's garage that dad had and I used when I was in high school.

A quick search on eBay shows a number of similar ones, calling them Model T Ford jacks.

Here's a sample of three different jack handle/tire irons I have. They are all about 18" long.

The one I recall was similar to THIS [ebay.com]
Also a pic of another that sold as a Model T Jack handle, but not like I recall.

I found a handle and it looks like a match. It was in the same shed as the jacks.

If the jack is too tall to go under the axle put it under the spring close to the axle.

They say money can't buy happiness. It can buy old Chevy trucks though. Same thing.
